Manny Pacquiao denies Floyd Mayweather exhibition rematch, wants “real fight”

Despite the comments from Floyd Mayweather, rival Manny Pacquiao is NOT interested in an exhibition match - he wants the real deal

Yesterday MMAnytt reported on Floyd Mayweather’s claims that an exhibition rematch with former foe Manny Pacquiao was in the works. Mayweather has a grandiose persona, and is used to getting as he wants. That may not be the case in this instance. While the rematch, which was said to be targeted for Tokyo, Japan, was not official, it was clearly what Mayweather wanted. Pacquiao, however, wants a much more “real” rematch with Mayweather.

“I have no idea what my brother Floyd is up to,” he added via text message.

“Why an exhibition? Make it a real fight,” Pacquiao relayed, wanting a normal boxing rematch with Mayweather.

Another one of Pacquiao’s associates, Dave Sisson said the following: “It’s just Mayweather using Manny’s name again.”

Mayweather’s last boxing bout was against former UFC champion Conor McGregor, the former won via TKO. Mayweather formally retired after that, but faced Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition boxing match last year. Mayweather won via first round TKO. Pacquiao most recently defeated Keith Thurman via split decision this summer.
